About

Hello, I am currently learning Revit and Civil 3D on an Autodesk 2021 seat and I would enjoy putting the license to work.

Having experience with both engineering and drafting design, I would like to provide services utilizing Revit Architectural and Structural packages.

Having a degree in Civil Engineering gives me the background for understand the design requirements for the structural integrity of the structure. The majority of design experience is with reinforced concrete, prestressed concrete and allowable steel design is about 14 years. One year I worked as a drafting contractor bidding for bridge beam shop drawings. (20% of work)

However, I also am interested in CAD design. I have a drafting degree in Architectural/Mechanical Drafting and am seeking to update my skills with Autodesk certification.

Also I have a CATIA Technician certificate used for design of a test model for an aerodynamic control surface , general assembly and part integration with structures and systems and design of standard parts for 8+ years Gulfstream. I plan to use the parametric skills learning to better understand Revit 3D design.
